Below are tips for parents and kids during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Tip #1: Put your judgment away and move towards accepting we are all just doing the best that we can, under the circumstances that we face, and understand that what is right for you may not be right for someone else.
Tip #2: Be the calm you wish your family to feel. Display healthy coping skills and healthy coping skills will build resiliency.
Tip #3: Keep regular activities as stable and consistent as possible. Focus on the day-to-day basics.
Tip #4: Avoid being too definitive, but do have some open, honest conversation about what you know, what you do not know, and in general what might be expected as we move throughout this school year. Remember getting "back to normal" is not possible.
Our lives and lifestyles have changed.
